Together with Amazon Studios and the Korean American Federation of Los Angeles (KAFLA), KYCC is launching a billboard campaign to raise awareness about #StopAsianHate.
With the current unprecedented rise in anti-Asian hate incidents happening in Los Angeles and across the country, the three organizations have joined together to help advance the issue of #StopAsianHate. Through billboard artwork designed by Asian American graphic artist Soyoung Heo, the collaborative seeks to convey a message of peace and solidarity with the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community about the need to put a stop to these acts of anti-Asian hate and violence.
Amazon Studios will provide three billboards to amplify this message throughout the City of Los Angeles, which will be on display from April 14 through May 9, 2021. The billboards will be located at 786B Venice Blvd and Sherbourne Dr. (East), 3547 Abbot Kinney Blvd between Washington Blvd. and Venice Blvd. (South), and 764B Olympic Blvd. and La Cienega Blvd. (East) (Olympic & La Cienega billboard will be going up on April 19).
Koreatown Youth and Community Center (KYCC) was established in 1975 to support a growing population of at-risk Korean American youth in Los Angeles. Today, KYCC is one of the largest multiservice organizations in Koreatown. With over 140 employees, most of whom are bilingual in Spanish or Korean, KYCC serves thousands of clients at our six locations and across Los Angeles County.
The Korean American Federation of Los Angeles (KAFLA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that serves the Korean American community of Los Angeles County. Founded in 1962, KAFLA represents and promotes the interests of the Korean American community. For more information, please visit www.kafla.org.
